I made it around to a few places and took photographs last Friday. It was, without a doubt, the most crowded First Friday event since the event began.

UNT On The Square

UNT On The Square

UNT On The Square is having a wonderful retrospective look at UNT faculty members from 1890-1980. I know one of the artists, Richard Davis, whose work is featured there while there are probably many more that anyone involved with UNT Art programs over the years would recognize.

Be sure to stop in and check it out.

First Friday Rolls On!

First Friday Rolls On!

Join us for First Friday Denton April 1st, 2011. April 1st, no foolin’! For this first Friday we have a father and daughter duo, Link and Katherine Chalon, performing in the studio. Some of you might have caught Link performing last week with Baloney Moon during our opening. Their performance will begin at 7 pm. Studio artists will be demonstrating drawing and painting. A special feature of the evening will be a chance to contribute to a community art project lead by Crystal Nelson, local artist and art teacher. Greg Conlin is back by popular demand for sketch portraits. A sitting takes about 30 minutes and costs $30. Kerry Boutell will demonstrate Watercolor batik, a process that uses a wax resist and watercolor medium. It is hard to believe that we pack so much fun into 2 hours. Come meet with friends and join us for music, art and fun!
